I’d like to customise the Virtue theme and realise that to do this to ensure it remains up to date with the current Virtue theme, I need to create a Child theme and customise it.
What I’m not clear on however is – can I make changes to the Theme via ‘Theme Options’ and ‘Customisation’ in the Word Press Dashboard too, or do I need to start with the complete uncustomised Virtue theme and make all my changes in the Child theme?
Hope this makes sense and apologies if it’s a stupid question – its my first time using Word Press!
Thanks for that. What about if I want to change it further though by saving it as a Child theme (to ensure it remains up to date with the current Virtue theme) and then manually making further changes? Is it a two step process, i.e. should I make the changes to the Theme via the ‘Theme Options’ and ‘Customisation’ in WP first, then save the Parent theme as a Child theme before I amend the Child theme .css file further?
